The aroma of this beer reminds me of a cedar chest; intensely aromatic, with overtones of fresh sap. The color is a deep, chocolate brown, verging on black that gives the beer a pleasing opaque quality. Upon pouring, a large but short-lived head develops. The flavor has an underlying sweetness but its predominate notesare of fall spices: nutmeg, clove and cinnamon. Mouth feel is rather thin and watery, which can be a little disconcerting if one is more familiar with substantial imperial dark beers. Overall, a very well-made, enjoyable beer. krumbum (1109) - truckee, California, USA - SEP 24, 2016
Mostly nice roasted stout smells with a light hint of pumpkin. Dark black with thin white ring of head. Big smooth roasted stout with a lovely soft peanut butter pumpkin grows out then fades back in just as gently. Light soft spice on the residual, mellow and pleasant. slowrunner77 (13622) - Reno, Nevada, USA - DEC 18, 2014
just like the peanut butter milk stout, no beer at 5% has a right to have a body this good. No alcohol shows but the body (and flavor) is lush and rich. Extra kudos for doing it with a spiced beer (equally as hard). Good stout, and the right amount of spices. Surprised this ain’t getting more love. rlgk (18843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2015

Taste is pie spices, dark and milk coco, roasted malts, sweet malts, pumpkin meat, brown sugar, and some coffee in the background.

With Z and J, pours a dark pitch black pour with a very small head. Nose is sweet with chocolate and malt and autumn spices. Taste is rich chocolate sweet malt with pumpkin and allspice notes. A rather light sweet easily drinkable sweet stout. Finish is sweet with a pumpkin, malt , and all spice ending. Light and drinkable and tasty. quaff score 7 / 10
